Volunteering

Sign up to volunteer

At Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, committed volunteers are the keys to our success. We invite you to make a difference in someone's life - bring a smile to an elderly patient or comfort a frightened child.

As a Memorial Hermann volunteer, you will be a part of the first hospital built in the Texas Medical Center. Our goal is to ensure that the volunteer experience at Memorial Hermann is as rewarding to the volunteer as it is beneficial to the patients, families, visitors and caregivers. To learn how to become a volunteer, please call Volunteer Services at (713) 704-4141. 

This is where you will find leading-edge medicine that has gained national recognition - the best and brightest medicine has to offer, all committed to providing our patients with exceptional clinical care. Be a part of that commitment by joining the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center Volunteer Services program.

This is where you can make a difference for someone in a time of need, console patients during a crisis, comfort a baby in a nursery or guide our visitors throughout the hospital system. Where you can participate in events and other marketing related activities.

This is where you can gain exposure and first-hand knowledge of our Emergency Center, a level 1 trauma center, as well as the heart and vascular, neuroscience, general medicine, geriatrics, and other specialty services within the Memorial Hermann -TMC.

Volunteer Profile

Hermann's volunteers come from all corners of the community and represent a variety of professions, age groups, physical abilities and ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

All have made the commitment to donate their time to patients, families and visitors and become part of Memorial Hermann.

Adult volunteers (minimum of 18 years old) are asked to commit to volunteering three to four hours a week for a minimum of six months.

Teen volunteers, students 14-17 years old, volunteer in the summer and throughout the year.

Volunteers are educated about the importance of ethics and confidentiality, professional behavior and appearance, proper patient interaction, including age-specific competencies, universal precautions, infection control, fire safety and security.

Unit-specific training is provided for each placement. It is possible to cross-train a volunteer in several different areas of the hospital. Every effort is made to match the applicant's skills, abilities, schedule and interests with the hospital's needs.
